JUST IN: Nigeria’s Blessing Okagbare Banned For 10 Years Over Doping

 

The Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) on Friday banned Nigeria’s 2008 Olympic long jump silver medalist, Blessing Okagbare for 10 years over doping.

“The Disciplinary Tribunal has banned Nigerian sprinter Blessing Okagbare for a total of 10 years,” read an AIU statement.

The 33-year-old sprinter won silver in the long jump at Beijing 2008.

The Nigerian competed in the 100m heats in Tokyo on July 31 2021 but was suspended prior to the semi-final.

The AIU had said that Okagbere tested positive for presence and use of a prohibited substance due to human growth hormone at an out-of-competition test in Slovakia on July 19.

“The AIU requested EPO analysis be conducted on the sample on July 29 and the adverse analytical finding was reported to it on Aug. 12,” the AIU said on August 20.
